Officer Doesn’t Recall Shooting Truck Driver

‘A Kansas City police officer was suffering a diabetes-related reaction when he apparently shot a truck driver at a convenience store, the officer’s attorney said Wednesday.

The officer, who has not been identified by the Police Department, doesn’t remember shooting anyone on Monday night, attorney John P. O’Connor said.

“It’s obvious to me there was no intent on his part to hurt anyone,” O’Connor said. [..]

The shooting victim, who also has not been identified, did not suffer life-threatening wounds. The officer has been put on paid administrative leave while the incident is being investigated.’
